Welcome to Nikki B’s Flosstube dedicated website, bringing together all her YouTube stitching videos in one place.
Flosstube videos of UK-based Nikki B cross-stitching her projects, talking you through monthly updates of her x-stitch projects, and probably equipment reviews and cross stitch tips such as how to park.
Nikki has been cross-stitching for MANY years, and has completed many projects – including large and very large full coverage cross-stitch designs from Heaven and Earth Designs. Her current largest completed project to date, Whispers, was approx 400,000 stitches, but she has larger on the go in her WIPS.
What is Flosstube?
So what is “Flosstube”? It’s a growing group of needle-based crafters (mostly but not only cross-stitch) who share videos on YouTube. The videos may show spoken word updates on what the stitcher is currently working on, or projects they have finished (and framed), or taking you through their many W.I.P.s (Work In Progress). There are also another collection of videos where the camera focuses on their current project, and you watch real-time (or sped up in some cases) as they stitch, often with no speaking and background music. They can be very relaxing (mindful if you will), and are often viewed while the watcher themselves stitch! Thus the term “Stitch With Me” was coined.
Some producers of Flosstube videos can be funny, or share much of the lives with you, while others concentrate on just their cross-stitch projects.
You can find much more about NIkki on her crafting blog website “The Crafty Writer” – which features much more of her stitching, plus some other crafty hobbies. There’s also guides on how to start cross-stitch projects, and and very popular “How to Park” explanation.
